The simple task of doing grocery shopping has taken on a whole other level of importance as we continue to spend more time cooking and recreating restaurant experiences at home.
For that reason, we’re often looking for specialty items and ingredients to add bursts of flavour to our meals. Elsewhere in Canada, T&T Supermarket is always an easy choice for these products.
But the Asian grocery chain recently launched a brand new app, meaning everything you need is now just a tap away in Montreal. Shoppers have ample options with thousands of products listed on the online store — including 250 food and household T&T brand products.
“As the pandemic drags on, people are getting bored of their own cooking and looking for something different,” Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarket, told Canadian Grocer. “They want to have more fun with their cooking and T&T online is a good place to explore new ingredients.”
In 1993, T&T was brought to life in Vancouver by duo Cindy and Jack Lee. Then, in 2009, it was bought over by Loblaw Companies Ltd. When Cindy Lee retired in 2014, she passed the torch to her daughter, the current CEO, Tina Lee. Fast-forward to 2021, and T&T operates 27 locations across Ontario, Alberta, and BC.
With the new T&T app, customers can stay in the know about the latest savings and deals, new product launches, and weekly specials flyers. It’s as easy as turning the in-app notifications on and seeing the promotions pop up on your smartphone. Plus, T&T will automatically add the online coupons to your account.
“It [the app] will also offer a variety of payment options such as WeChat Pay and Alipay and real-time online chat services to ensure the smoothest online shopping experience,” said Jennifer Mei, Director of E-Commerce at T&T, in an interview with Canadian Grocer.
As the largest Asian supermarket chain in Canada, T&T is renowned for stocking fresh and frozen products that help shoppers get the most out of their Asian food adventures.
Through the new app, customers can also send Asian beauty gifts, fruit baskets, Japanese snacks, and much more to any address across the country, and it takes just three to five days for delivery.
Shopping via the T&T app is rewarding, thanks to the supermarket chain’s rewards program. Every time you make a purchase of $20, you’ll collect 20 points.
And when you visit the T&T online store, you can collect points when you shop. When you have the app, you can easily redeem all points with one simple click.
Pro tip: Shoppers can get $5 off their first online purchase made through the app.
